We are incredibly excited to begin to announce our business incubator, located in the heart of Norwich City. When we started reviewing the concept, we wanted to set out to create a space where any businesses accepted to the incubator would receive support to achieve their full potential. We understand that full potential may mean different things for different people and companies. Not every new venture can be a unicorn, but they can still be a solid business for the owners, it’s employees, customers and the local community.
It is from this world view that we wanted to make an incubator with a difference. Being accepted to the Akcela incubator gets you access to our team listed below, access to free office space in the heart of Norwich City Centre and support from our great partners, who we will focus on in later updates.
Alongside our lead sponsors, we have our amazing associates including The Cambridge-Norwich Tech Corridor, The Norfolk Chambers of Commerce, Vision Assets, Anglia Capital Group and many more who we will announce in the near future.
Our incubation space is about a safe place to grow. All of our partners have signed up to a non-solicitation agreement with our incubated companies (that means they are there for a level of support, not another potential customer to sell to). We are community focused so that means only one partner in each specialism we think start-up and scale up companies need to flourish.
We can’t wait for more announcements, and to officially open applications. In the meantime, please do get in touch if you’d like to know more, or find out about how incubation with Akcela works.
